checking in...

Sunday morning.  I should be getting ready for church, but I have decided I'm not going today. 

Right now I'm down the street watering someones lawn.  They took off on vacation to South America to visit family, and left me their keys so I could water their yard and make sure the house was ok.  And use the internet. 

Global warming has not been kind to us this year.  Triple digits started in early July... usually they hold off until August.  So far the highest it's been is 108F.  That's  the official temp... but when you're on the pavement all day it's actually a few degrees hotter.  Not a lot of fun out there. 

We've been having a few days of milder heat though... yesterday it was 99.  It was a relief.  How sick is that? 

So far the plants at the flea market are selling pretty good... I'm actually having a hard time keeping things stocked.  Big pots with combinations of succulents don't sell as well as small rooted cutting though.  People want the little starts of plants rather than the big impressive ones.  Go figure. 

Really just checking in.  Hope everyone is doing well.  TA
